We founded Unstoppable Domains in 2018 with a vision of enabling user-owned, digital identity for every person on the planet. Historically, people have built their online identities around Web2 companies that use people’s data for profit. We believe NFT domains have the power to change this, providing infrastructure that allows people to own their reputation and data, and make it portable across web3.

Founded in 2018, Unstoppable Domains has always centred its vision around giving people and not companies “the power to own their identity on web3”.

It has since garnered over 2.5+ Million registered domains and over 300+ partners/integrations.

Unstoppable Domain has simplified access to more than 150 Web3 applications, replaced lengthy crypto wallet addresses on over 80 wallets and exchanges, created decentralized websites, and building your web3 identity.

An Unstoppable domain can cost anywhere from US$40 to US$40,000 depending on whether the name is a common dictionary word, its keyword length and/or a brand name.

These domain names are accessible either natively or via browser plugin/addon. Both the Brave and Opera web browsers support unstoppable domain extensions.
